I always love criticism. I'd like to hear what you think of my review. Please post a response!

Generally I find the game reasonably good. The Pros and Cons mentioned above are fairly accurate with a few additions and exceptions. The endgame, I feel, is still lacking. Raids can get monotonous especially when you are doing the same dungeon(s) every week. There are some very annoying bugs - resources reset to zero in guild city areas if you swap characters and if no other guild member is there. Armour is dull with classes virtually all dressed the same with identical weapons (epic at level 80).
Expansion of content (Patch 1.05.3) was sorely needed but it brought with it atrocious lag and disconnects. May be it was more the large influx of returning gamers that is continuing to overwhelm the servers. While not everyone has experienced these lag spikes, there are some for whom the game has now become unplayable. I know this to be true because we are losing guild members who are giving up on the game due to severe lag. This lag is not just confined to Tarantia Common and one is continually seeing postings asking if anyone else is experiencing "Lag".
Having played Anarchy Online I have noticed a marked similarity with in-game Latency with AoC. With Anarchy all Funcom did was to release new expansions without fixing underlying problems. It is really disappointing to see that Funcom don't learn from past experiences and again rely on producing expansions while they lose customers due to incompetency. I read, on the European Forum, yesterday that one person (who had been unable to play for over a month due to lag, etc.) had been given 7 days free addition game-play to their account by a GM. This seems a bit futile and one has to wonder if all the experienced staff have been reassigned to develop expansions rather than fixing bugs and latency issues.

Well..im not sure what you mean by overwhelming...the game is as shallow as a Frisbee. Please explain.
How come no mention of FUBAR'd sieges?
or the economy?
or class balance?
or a lack of armour choices?
